Before the Family Code took effect in Aug 1988, all was different.
It was regulated in the Civil Code, and as an example, a girl was able to get married when she was 16
Article 54, of the Civil Code: 

Quote

Any male of the age of sixteen years or upwards, and any female of the age of fourteen years or upwards, not under any of the impediments mentioned in Articles 80 to 84, may contract marriage.

Also, foreigners got married to girls 14-15 years old her before Aug 1988

The plain and simple fact that people do not get a legal separation or annulment here is they cant afford it. If they had divorce that would not be cheap either.

I don't blame people for not wanting to pay for legal separation. It means absolutely nothing. People might be more willing to pay for divorce since it actually gives them freedom from a bad relationship.

The only  extra cost in an annulment from a divorce is paying a doctor to testi-lie that the cause for the differences was some sort of prexisitng condition

There has always been talk. The Church will never allow it to happen unless Duterte writes it into a new constitution (if he gets that far). A measure like that would NEVER make it through Congress.

So basically marriage in the Philippines is truly an institution... You can't ever be free!

March 20, 2018

The Philippines took its closest step yet to legalizing divorce this week, despite opposition from President Rodrigo Duterte and religious groups.

The country’s lower house of Congress voted Monday to pass a bill allowing couples to dissolve “irreparable marriages” and remarry, with 134 lawmakers voting for and 57 against, with two abstentions, Reuters reports. 

the divorce law did get through Congress, but it won't even get through the upper house so Duterte, who opposes the bill, will not get the chance to veto it.
